I have the same spreadsheet set I use each year.
The new spreadsheet for 2013 will need to reference fields in the 2012

='file:///home/fred/Generation Readings-2012.ods'#$Jan.A68
The 2012 spreadsheet is referenced to 'file:///home/fred/Generation

For the past few years I have manually changed the Readings-2012 in every
instance (well over 100)

I would like to be able to construct the spreadsheets with a method to change
the current year, eg 2013 minus 1 to give 2012 inserted so that the ref in the
2013 spreadsheet reads;-

='file:///home/fred/Generation Readings-2012.ods'#$Jan.A68

Is this possible?
Thanks for any help
I don't know if you attached a file with your email or not. If you did, it was stripped by the mailing list. So, in other words, no one on the list can access a file to see what you describe in a Calc file. Since I'm into databases, I'm wondering if your data would be better served creating a database to hold it. Not knowing how many sheet your file contains nor what the columns are and what format each column use. (I'm guessing that you use one sheet per year.) So, it would be impossible to make any detailed comments. From personal experience, a database would require less time to maintain than your present speadsheet. With a little bit of work, all your data could be entered into a database.
     Could we have more information, please?
